    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Good growth opportunities, some offices are close-knit and great to work with. Some exceptional people work here.

    Cons

    Absolutely horrible on-boarding experience in terms of actual work preparation. The unreasonable and downright short sighted metrics and expectations placed on newly hired individuals severely impacts reaction to the culture. Causes the workplace to become hostile, confused, and irrational.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough with the emphasis on "hard metrics" that don't accomplish any sustainable growth and lead to number fudging, favor influencing, confused evaluations that try to supplant subjective ideas with objective numbers through the blackest box imaginable.

    Pros

    - The best place to develop your professional network
    - The apprenticeship method of developing individuals is refreshing
    - The experience you gain is broad and helps in career development

    Cons

    have to work weekends and work life balance is a challenge. Although they claim to be politically agnostic, there are political battles that one has to fight day in and day out which becomes tiring. What I have noticed is, if you work in the Oracle Practice, penetrating into SAP practice to sell services using an Oracle product is nearly impossible, and it is the same the other way around too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you claim that you have clients interest in mind and provide services that are true advisory in nature, you need to ensure that the political lines are erased between two product groups.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Deloitte Consulting, in the US Federal practice. Deloitte employs lots of talented young and experienced professionals, and has an impressive array of corporate qualifications to draw from. This can be helpful from a learning and exposure perspective as you start your career. Personally, I progressed through the company rather quickly, and found several mentor figures who I was able to learn a lot from and who definitely had a positive influence on my career.

    Cons

    I felt at times the culture rewards people who appear to be working hard, rather than those who actually make the most meaningful contributions. A matrix-style organization sounds good, but in practice leads to one where your entire career progression depends on networking and who you know (in other words--nepotism). Deloitte calls it "manage your own career." I call that sink or swim.

    Also, do not underestimate the size of Deloitte, nor the amount of bureaucracy that comes with that. I spent a lot of time fulfilling corporate requirements that were not relevant to my day-to-day activities for the client.

    Finally, I observed unhealthy/unsustainable approaches to work/life balance, in particular among senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will add more value for Deloitte and its employees to bring people into functional and/or industry focuses sooner in their careers. From what I saw at Deloitte, the most successful consultants were those who came in and made these choices on their own, and the less successful were ones who accepted the notion of being a "general management" consultant, and ended up bouncing from project to project with little career continuity or capitalization on the professional networks they had built.

    Deloitte has a good problem: there are a ton of resources and people available, the question is how to make the most of it rather than get confused by it.

    Neutral Experience. You are more valued if you do internal firm work but less valued if you are skilled.

    Pros

    Culture is not bad w.r.t. other consulting companies. Compensation ranges are at par

    Cons

    Skilled person is less valued. You are valued based on internal firm initiatives, which is not rewarding. The client work is not much appreciated - it is rather considered expected from one. More you work on internal initiatives, are rated better. Despite travel, which is almost in all consulting companies, you are expected to work at least 12 to 14 hours a day, which is very tough for a married person with kids. It is a reasonable firm fresh college grads to gain experience but not a firm to take the retirement.
